of tobacco free and health advocates. in 2012 they were 250 street festivals and fairs in san francisco from carnavals to the chinese year. all of these events attract smokers. this is an important ordinance that will make sure that we have more smoke-free festivals and events. exposure to secondhand smoke kills about 3000, non-smokers from lung cancers and 46,000 non-smokers of heart disease in the u.s. also individuals with asthma and other respiratory illnesses that is why such a strong coalition including young people from sf state to the asthma task force and the coalition working to make sure we have more smoke-free places in san francisco. research shows that exposure to second-hand home outdoors is just as bad as endorsed. this is the first city to have an ordinance about smoke-free festivals. there is no safe level of exposure to secondhand spoke, several studies show that exposure again, outdoors can reach levels the same as endorse and can be just as dangerous. for quite a few months i have been working with various groups, breathe california, the department of public he

in san francisco. additional testimony on the formation of the moscone expansion district will be taken at the public hearing on february 5th at 3:00 p.m. at a meeting of the full board of supervisors. at the close of the public testimony on february 5th or at a future board meeting if the hearing is continued, the ballots will be tabulated. if the required ballot threshold is reached the board of supervisors will vote on resolution to establish the moscone expansion district. i'm prepared to provide you more information on what the moscone expansion district is but also wanted to let you know that next week budget and finance, there will be three additional items. there will be a resolution on the finding of fiscal feasibility on the january 30th budget and finance committee to be considered. an ordinance authorizing the certificates of participation issuance and supplemental appropriation for certificates of participation. all of those pieces of legislation will be presented on the 30th in detail and in for the board's consideration. again, another presentation on the 5th. i'm here to
a diversified economy in san francisco so the city is not simply high paid, high finance or tech jobs and low wage servants and will the mayor crash the real estate market to make san francisco afford. again to elaborate on this the 2010 sentences showed low increase household and upper increase households finds one findings done by ted ebegans from the controllers office the economist wrote that the comiebts that create a job distribution are in the local serving sector of the economy which has largely declined in recent years and what is your plan to create wage jobs in industries to prevent the city's work class from being displaced for the newer upper increase jobs and the high-tech jobs financial and provision service cities? >>> thank you supervisor and i'm glad to here and i join you in the effort of using social media to community with our constituent. >> let me start by saying that we have come off of the worst economic downturn when i took office last year the unemployment rate was 9.6%. that has now changed to eight% since 2011 and that is growing at a 6.6% pace, there are stil
in the bay area than they do in the san francisco school district. we have to change that. this appropriation is about recognizing that while money is not the only answer, money is part of the answer. this is about closing the achievement gap which is one of the single most important challenges that we are facing as a city. that is why this vote is so important. and so i would once again - and i have a lot of respect for my colleagues and i understand the reasoning that has been reticulated - but the reason why i am against, by releasing money that the district is entitled to, we are not doing anything -- it would be a mistake for san francisco not to make this choice now. for everyday, every month that we delay making that additional expenditure the achievement gap with some students is going to grow wider and will become more expensive to close it. i hope that we support this item. and again i want to thank supervisor kim and the other cosponsors. and i look forward to working with our new colleagues. >> president: supervisor kim. >> supervisor kim: i'm glad that supervisor mar mentioned i

different cities. and what happens to some people in san francisco. we are a city of great wealth. we have because of a lot of different reasons we are fortunate enough that we have more resources in san francisco then many places throughout the state and throughout this country. but the reason why this vote is so important is that even though we as a board of supervisors do not have actual governance of the schools, what we have done in san francisco over the years because of the work of people like -- and gavin newsom and others is that we have recognize that where our state and federal government have fallen short in fulfilling their duties and obligations to properly funding public schools we a city government have stepped in and fill those gaps. the important point is not for us and giving the school district money that it is already entitled to. i'm glad that we will comply with what the law already requires in the intent of those measures were. the whole point of the supplemental is to recognize that we have a fundamental problem in our hands. business as usual is no longer accept
day in san francisco when you have three leaders the very wreck nice for doing great community work here in san francisco, i know david and jane closely; i don't know malia as closely. i see you out in the community. i am happy that you three have risen to the top. it is time for san francisco to stop playing this whole rhetoric game of how we are this panacea; we have gone 25 years without female leadership is a bit off for a city like san francisco. i would like to throw my support to jane kim whom i met working on her school board campaign and working on a number of organizations throughout san francisco, on issues for groups like those i represent. it is important that we have a leader that is able to reach our community and interact with not just her district but throughout. i support jane kim today. >> president: thank you. next speaker. >> >> it is always wonderful for me, two years ago i remember jane, i remember malia getting into those seats and look at them today. it is hard for me because i know both jane and i know malia so when it gets down to them nomination

. eric brook representing san francisco green party and the local organization our city. first a technical point on all of this. i was under the impression and check with dhr on this that the executive position still exists but filled on an interim basis. maybe i am wrong on that but good to make sure you're correct on that from the staff's perspective. i agree bringing it back in house because the next year is going to be really big for clean power sf and some other things and we need somebody that can be available five days a week, 50 weeks a year. i mean that's really going to be important, but the main thing i want to focus on is that the advocates for clean power sf have had some concerns with the way that lafco -- when we originally set set up lafco to work on clean power sf and especially get at the beginning of 2007 and what we needed from lafco and i believe the intention we needed somebody on task for clean power sf itself that could approach the sf puc on many occasions the sf puc wasn't thinking outside of the box on this to put it politely, and we need someone,
